My Bible studies on Revelation, written for small groups, have just been
published by Matthias Media under the name 'The Vision Statement'.
I have 5 copies to distribute free to people who might be able to provide
feedback or reviews. It is a set of 9 studies with questions, taking an Old
Testament-based approach with a christological emphasis.
You can see it online at www.matthiasmedia.com.au.
If anyone would like a copy, please send me your mailing address off-list
